The Grapes of Wrath

Ugh. Recovering after too much wine and merriment at a gathering of the herd last night at Marty and Teresa's home. As is customary, we ran a few miles before eating and drinking. Amid the fun was a kitchen caucus of Bush bashers as a few Democrat Buffaloes (me included) discussed presidential candidates.

Tomorrow is my favorite running event, the Riddle Run, a trail run at Mahomet that brings together a lot of fun folks and good food no matter what the weather. This is the 8th year of this event and I've never missed it. A few years ago it dipped to -11 degress at the start of the run, and other years have seen freezing rain, snow, and ice. Portable stoves and generators have allowed us to cook despite some tough conditions. I'll be taking a lot of photos at the Riddle Run and will probably post them Monday.
